The yarn for this project was a gift in 2013, and the finished cowl will warm my neckline as much the friendship warms my heart.

There is much to be said for a knitting project that is uncomplicated enough to be completed in two weeks, particularly when the local weather has finally returned to a more normal damp and blustery coldness. The January "thaw", while allowing for shirtsleeves and bike rides, was quite worrisome in terms of summer drought.
